Ahead of next week’s EU Summit, MEPs call for urgent action to safeguard EU programme funding, to tackle climate change and to avoid a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.

MEPs called for a solution on the next long-term EU investment budget and warned against disrupting EU-funded programmes, in the debate on the upcoming October Summit with the Finnish Council Presidency’s Tytti Tuppurainen, Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Chief EU negotiator on Brexit Michel Barnier.

They also called for timely solutions on climate change to meet the Paris Agreement goals.

On Brexit, most MEPs condemned the current ‘blame game’ and the UK government’s stance and called for a solution to avoid a disastrous no-deal Brexit.
